    To Shirley’s Family, Well today you laid her body into the ground for safe keeping. Knowing you can visit anytime you want. She is not there, she has gone to Heaven to be in the arms of Jesus. Oh to be in the arms of Jesus Christ her Savior. She is with her loved ones who went before her. Jesus who went to prepare a place for her, Debbie who went to walk on the Golden Streets before her and I’m sure other family members who awaited her coming.
    She is Happy now for she is in a new body, a new body that is free of sickness disease and old age.
    I truly whole heartedly believe that not only did Debbie but Shirley also accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior and they reside in Heaven and that you can one day too see them in Heaven if you accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior and follow Him.
    My prayers are with you all. I love you all!
    I’m sorry I was unable to attend services today. Just know I’ve thought of all of you since I heard of her passing. God Bless. Love, Lori Snyder
